After my wife's confession of never having changed gear on her by nu nu (fnar fnar!) I though it time to rebuild it removing the excess weight that was redundant! Theme is er... Red?! Coming together nicely!

They are a great handling frame I took this one down the 4x at chick sands when we first got it. Really nice!

Indeed - though with the modifications I've had to make to get her in a position she's comfortable in to ride, speed and handling are not high on her list of priorities!

It hardly gets ridden, so I'm thinking it'll be a great retro (by then) bike for my now 6 year old son to inherit when he gets big enough!
